Our monthly Bible-study meets again at 7:30pm this Friday (13th). On the day where we will go to the ballots as a country again, it will be good to meet to discuss our increasingly relevant subject of 'living proof.'
Tea/coffee and sweet pieces follow as ever and all are welcome & encouraged to come along to an informal opportunity to discuss God's Word.
On Thursday night (12th) at 6pm, a meeting will be held at Grace Reformed Church regarding the possibility of starting a Christian School in Aberdeen.
The meeting seeks to meet with those who are want to know more or be directly involved in the school.
Whether you are able to make it or not, please keep the matter in prayer. The work, while undoubtedly a blessing to kids and parents alike, involves much hard work and sacrifice.
For our Communion Season this year, we welcome the Rev Alasdair Macleod, who ministers on the Isle of Lewis, in the district of Point.

Preparatory Service - Saturday 6:00pm @ the church
Morning Service & Lord's Supper - 11:00am @ the church

As ever, all are warmly invited and encouraged to join with us.
This Friday we look forward to resuming our Bible study. We recently went through Isaiah, looking at various themes and aspects of the book. It is of course a book with 66 chapters, so we have much to cover yet!
The next study is called 'Living Proof,' looking at our witness to the world. In Scotland today, so many folk are unaware of what a true Christian is, so we hope this will benefit everyone and help as we communicate the Gospel to those in our various social circles.
Please feel welcome to come! It is informal, with lots of time for questions. The pace is slow, so as to glean as much as possible from our subjects. Tea/coffee and sweet things will follow!
We look forward to having some visiting preachers in our pulpit this month, as our Minister in in Snizort (Isle of Skye) for communions there, as well as taking some well-earned family holidays.
Yesterday, we were thankful to have Mr Paul Crowe with us. Mr Crowe has recently moved to Aberdeen in his role as Superintendent of the East Scottish District of the Faith Mission. Mr Crowe preached warmly and we enjoying meeting him.
